Penalties for Partial Payment

If the amount of the tax bill is not paid or, if mailed, is not postmarked with Post Office cancellation on or before the due date, a penalty and possible interest will be added to the amount due pursuant to Ohio Revised Code 323.123

The Treasurer's Office makes every effort to mail all tax bills to the party responsible for payment.  It is the obligation of the taxpayer to obtain the property bill(s) if not received in the mail.  Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse your failure to pay, nor does it relieve a taxpayer of the mandatory penalty and/or interest imposed by law.

Important Reminders
